about

This is a well-known hymn that made the cut for the cd. Feel free to sing along!

lyrics

Strum along, pick along, plunk along, tap along....whatever your instrument requires: I included the chords to play for you!

(G)'Tis so sweet to (C)trust in (G)Jesus, and to take him (Am)at (G)his (D)word;
(G)just to rest (C)upon his (G)promise, and to (Am)know, "Thus (G)saith (D)the (G)Lord."


Refrain:
(G)Jesus, Jesus, (Am)how I (D)trust him!
(G)How I've proved him {Am}o'er and (D)o'er!
(G)Jesus, Jesus, (C)precious (G)Jesus!
O for (Am)grace to (D)trust him (G)more!


O how sweet to trust in Jesus, just to trust his cleansing blood;
and in simple faith to plunge me neath the healing, cleansing flood!

(REFRAIN)

Yes, 'tis sweet to trust in Jesus, just from sin and self to cease;
just from Jesus simply taking life and rest, and joy and peace.

(REFRAIN)

I'm so glad I learned to trust thee, precious Jesus, Savior, friend;
and I know that thou art with me, wilt be with me to the end.

(REFRAIN)

Thanks to the writer of this hymn, who I've heard wrote it after a particular hard spell. Look it up.

The Tanis Sisters Michigan

As sisters, we've known eachother since, well, forever. We've always enjoyed messing around musically, and in 2011 Bethany picked up the mandolin and we played our first bluegrass-gospel-y gig.
